Queen Marking Cage - Crown Of Thorns


Notify me when back in stock

The "Crown of Thorns" queen marking cage is a variation of the standard queen marking cage, which features inward-facing metal spikes or thorns on the interior walls of the cage to immobilize the queen more effectively during marking.

The spikes or thorns are designed to gently grip the queen's thorax and prevent her from moving around too much while the beekeeper applies a small dot of paint or marker to her body. This immobilization process is intended to reduce the risk of the queen getting injured during marking, which could disrupt the colony's reproductive health.
